Round Wood Timber Construction- Round House

Emerging from the warmth and darkness the heavy cloth is pushed aside to reveal the most glorious sunrise, an inversion in the valley below cloaks the tips of the trees in fog as you begin another day of enhancing bushcraft skills following your private invitation to make use of the timber framed round house within the woodland ways forest.

Well, ok, you have to build it first!

We are incredibly excited to announce that we are building a timber framed round house within our woodlands, and invite you to join us to learn the skills of roundwood construction.

On this 4 day course you will learn a wide range of simple construction skills and techniques using wood in the round, whilst building a rather stylish rustic covered area.

Skills covered include:

  • Choice of wood for frame building
  • Structural integrity techniques
  • Debarking techniques
  • A wide range of joints to ensure structural strength
  • Choice of pitch
  • Creating shape and angles in round wood
  • Effective techniques for splitting of wood traditionally
  • Weaving wall panels including windows
  • and much more besides.


Throughout the course you will use of a variety of traditional tools and be fully immersed in the construction.

We will also be creating benches, pot hangers and various fittings to the interior.

You will feast each evening a glorious cooked meal by our instructors consisting of venison haunches, hare, pheasant and more (lunches and breakfasts are self catered)

As an extra special bonus for attending this course we are allowing all participants to then experience an exclusive woodland evening using the structure that you have built with a member of their family or friend at any point within 12 months of the build.
